Very bad phone. Do not support GSM internet. Samsung should provide updated version of Android for i589 so that people can use GSM internet on it. CDMA internet is slow and costly.
firstname.lastname@example.org, 28 May 2012I am using SCH-I589...read all the posts before mine on this blog.Things I am facing are
1. N... moreSamsung kies 2 is available for windows and Mac OS...
This phone is really goodin view of getting high speed net which is EvDO service by tata or reliance but only in big cities where it is available and its too costly, tata is charging 2GB@500Rs. And reliance 200 for 500mb.. net speeds are equivalent to 4G but battery problem is the biggest drawback.. u need to recharge it constantly if u r using net throughout.
rest gsm network is also good but no net connection on gsm network.
camera quality 3mp..bad.. no flashlight..
822mhz is enough but ram is just 256
personally u need to use net only as and when needed then battery goes good..
but my personal feeling is this is not great to use unless and untill EvDo service gets cheaper like 3g
samsung has lost his goodwill by making i589 sorry this feature we can get in half amount
Irfan, 25 Jun 2012Useless phone simply waste of money... No internet for GSM BAND hanging problem touch pad pro... moreI am agree with you. GSM has no internet facility. this phone hanged during conversation. USELESS MOBILE. I have wasted my money by purchasing this mobile. Company must think over it.
I have the same AUTO OFF and ON problem. Other than that I don't have any issues. Battery drains very fast. Samsung should replace with a high capacity battery for the customers at free of cost. Battery doesn't lasts for even a single day.
Hai,I am using this phone for the last 2 months.My mobile is getting AUTO OFF & ON.The mobile is hanging problem and not able to use Internet on GSM.Head set jack problem, SIM Tray faulty .It is not worthy to buy this phone at this price.

Samsung should look into it and produce a good GSM AND CDMA PHONE...

Vijay., 15 Jun 2012Can you plz elaborate the pros and cons of this phone i mean to say advantages and disadvantag... moreAdvantages
Only reasonable CDMA handset available
You can use Tata Docomo for CDMA which has ultra cheap Data plans
1, poor battery life. you must not use internet when away from charger ( or take charger with you). It drains extremely fast.Better use only as a pure CDMA phone. Putting both sims drians battery even fast
2, No internet in GSM mode
3, Sluggish graphic performance.
4, very low internal memory. Basic apps will itself take all memory
Performance and battery wise , even Galaxy Y is better but then we do not have that in CDMA
irungovel, 24 Jun 2012please tell me any possible to increase internal memory i activated reliance 1gb free data act... moreNo it is not possible physically. Yes it is theoretically possible by rooting device and moving all apps to SD card, but no one seems to know how to root this device.
